L. M.


Christian Farewell.

Thy presence, ever living God!

Wide through all nature spreads abroad;

Thy watchful eyes, which never sleep,

In every place Thy children keep.

While near each other we remain,

Thou dost our lives and powers sustain;

When separate, we rejoice to share

Thy counsels, and Thy gracious care.

To Thee we now commit our ways,

And still implore Thy heavenly grace;

Still cause Thy face on us to shine,

And guard and guide us still as Thine.

Give us within Thy house to raise

Again united songs of praise;

Or, if that joy no more be known,

Give us to meet around Thy throne.
